When we look at the world other than Muslim countries, we find a large number of cases related to sexual crimes. Islamic dress code is Allah’s boon especially for a Muslim woman which not only safeguards her modesty and charity, but also brightens her life in the Hereafter.After contemplating the current environment of the world, it comes to knowledge that today same civilizations, customs and fashions are widely practiced, which were in vogue among the disbelievers before the advent of Islam. Only the point of difference is –that the earlier people used to practice such things in traditional ways, whereas now these have been motivated into advanced fashion. Nevertheless, the true followers of Islam are still immune from these ailments, because they follow the principles of this Divine religion, advent of which brought a unique change in the annals of human civilization. One of the basic and quintessential requirements of the mankind i.e. dress or use of clothes has also been explained in Islam with its exact purpose and proper use by stipulating its required magnitude.The Islamic dress code for the women is described in addition to the elucidation of Islamic laws applicable in connection with the relationship between men and women, their certain limits of approach and accessibility to mahram and ghair-mahram people. The terms, mahram and ghair-mahram are defined later in the light of concerned Verse of the Holy Qur’an.
